LABEL - SPECIAL THERMO PAPER - THERMO CARDBOARD
Thermodirect cardboards are a combination of carrier pad, face material and adhesive layer, the face material is made of different types of paper. The production of thermodirect papers is based on uncoated paper, which is transformed into thermodirect paper by applying an additional chemical coating. The first chemical layer, the lower layer, prevents the spread of heat generated by the thermal head on the paper. This provides better resolution when printing at low power.
The second chemical layer, the thermal layer, contains a dye and a developer. At a temperature of 250 C, the thermal substrate melts, bringing the dye to contact with the developer and forming a thermal image. The bond between the two chemicals in the thermal layer is quite fragile and can be broken by contact with grease, plasticizers or water, thus fading the printed image. Additional coatings are added to protect the thermal layer.
We offer self-adhesive paper thermodirect cardboards made of the following materials:
Thermodirect paper with high sensitivity, without protective coating. The cartons made of this paper have limited resistance to scratching and smearing and low resistance to contact with plasticizers, grease and water.
Print speed: up to 300 mm / sec
Suitable for information boards in a dry, non-aggressive environment with low humidity. Used for cardboard for electronic scales in supermarkets and other retail applications where cardboard has a short life
Thermodirect paper with standard sensitivity, with a protective coating on both sides of the thermal layer. The cartons made of this paper have very good resistance to scratches and smudges, as well as to plasticizers, grease and water. It has good protection against chemical and mechanical influences, high humidity and low temperatures.
Print speed: up to 200 mm / sec
Suitable for cardboards with universal application, product cartoning with requirements for good image resistance to the environment, in areas such as the food industry (for frozen products), retail, transport and logistics.
Cardboards made of this paper are suitable for pre-printing with all methods, including flexo (with water-based inks, alcohol-based inks and UV inks), letterpress and offset.
